Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: After Dark (Classic Editing)
Collection: landscapes
Camera: Sony DSC-F707
Location: Nivå, Denmark
Date: Jan 5, 2004
Aperture: F 3.1
ISO: 100
Shutter: 30 s
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jan 6, 2004

30 second exposure at almost full moon, Jan 5th, 4 hours after sunset.

The moon is to the high left, outside the picture, the one bright spot you see on the left is the planet Mars. The light glow on the rocks is ice, it was minus 5 'C (=23 'F) at the time. The sea was gently rocking on the shore, but due to long exposure it looks smooth.

Image rotated to get horizon straight. Cropped, applied levels, followed by neatimage, resizing, unsharp mask, save for web.

I like the sheen on the rocks...unusual night shot.

This is a very lovely an satisfying image, the reach or the stones and the gentleness of the curve are good and the sky balances it all - very nice

Very nice composition
01/17/2004 02:13:33 AM
Another truly gorgeous shot. The colors and textures are palpable.

What light there is reflecting off off the wet rocks makes this photograph captivating. Nice levels of blue throughout. 10.

Super use of line. The misty rocks are very lovely, too. The hardest thing in photography is getting the horizon straight--and you do that, too!

Great picture 9

Beautiful, otherworldy photo. Makes me imagine some magical time that we never see but actually exists very briefly at night. Composition, exposure, and clarity is great. I knocked of 1 point and gave you a 9 because the horizon line looks slightly tilted to me. Sorry if it isn't! It may also be an optical effect of the little peninsula, but I stared at it for awhile and it doesn't look straight to me. Very cool though, they could have put this scene in Lord of the Rings.

Nice jetty!
01/12/2004 09:49:42 PM
Great composition. The water looks so misty, so beautiful. Very nice shot.
01/12/2004 08:36:52 PM
Technical: fits the challenge. Exposure lighting composition focus all excellent.

Personal: Absolutely beautiful!

My vote: 10

cool shimmery glow on the rocks. I assume this was a long exposure from how light the image is. I'd be intrerested in the details after the challenge.
01/12/2004 02:26:29 PM
Interesting compositon - the blues are beautiful.
01/12/2004 01:04:00 PM
Isn't it wonderful when the weather (and the moon) cooperate. Nice shot. Well focused and exposed.
01/12/2004 01:02:01 PM
Nice! We'll take your word on the full moon part, I guess...
01/12/2004 12:45:08 PM
Nice shot. This is just beautifully shot.
01/12/2004 11:36:56 AM
What makes your shot IMO is the water and rocks right in the middle foreground of the shot, beautiful light, texture, feel, a very high interest area.
01/12/2004 11:36:09 AM
This is very ethereal. I love the way the rocks look very wet and smooth. It is a beautiful shot.
01/12/2004 10:07:08 AM
Is is a better photo in the dark as aposed to earlier morning sunrise/sunsit?
01/12/2004 12:59:37 AM
Nice composition. Love the color tone, it feels very cold and calm.
